Not just for hockey players anymore!
Although this says Part II, do not assume that the fiest film, Part A, is the first part of THIS film. It's not. The first film is Part A of another EDITION of this film. It's easy to determine: this is in color, the other one is not.
Having gotten that out of the way, I wish I DID see part I, as this looks like one lulu of a movie. In just the we learn that you could have a plexiglass shower wall, trays, soap holders, towel holders, bedroom door, drawer handles, hat racks and so so so much more. This movie REALLY makes you chomp at the bit for more! This is a MUST SEE on this site!

Take my plexiglass... PLEASE
The end of WWII brought two miracle materials to the home front, aluminum and plastics. With most R&D costs paid by the government, factories primed from war production and legions of returning soldiers needing jobs, demand had to be created.
The Reynolds films show how well the aluminum industry responded, and this film shows some of the more lofty ambitions of the plastics industry.
Unlike the items in the Reynolds Aluminum films, few of these dream Plexiglas products were ever sold - and some are delightfully ridiculous!
